Who is running in the 2019 Ryanair Chase?

What are the top tips for the race?

We’ve got all of our tipsters to give you their hot fancy for the contest:


GO with the Fro in the Ryanair Chase. FRODON is tailor-made for this race. He jumps well, has stacks of course form and is tougher than a Berni Inn steak.

There’s always been a lot to like about Paul Nicholls’ ace but he’s taken his form to the next level this season. He kicked off with victory in the Old Roan Chase at Aintree before failing by only a couple of lengths to land the BetVictor Gold Cup in November.

Matt Chapman

Ruby Walsh has picked Footpad, but I think that is a mistake. I’m taking UN DE SCEAUX to roll back the years and Ireland’s probable champion jockey Paul Townend.

Wizard Of Odds

FOOTPAD can come back to his best and fly away with the Ryanair Chase.

He looked destined to join the sport’s greats when winning the Arkle here last year by no fewer than 14 lengths.
His form has dipped on that level this season but there were plenty of positive signs when he finished a close second in a Leopardstown Grade 1 last time out.


The trends leave us with FOOTPAD who ticks another box in being a second-season chaser.
